The New York Times printed an article last week examining an aspect of adult education that is a quiet motivator for some. That unspoken energy underneath the yoga courses, the sushi making workshop, the tennis lessons. Singles anyone?
Unfortunately, it appears single women are finding a “dearth of testosterone” in their classes. It’s certainly the case at CCAE that women take courses in larger numbers than their male counterparts. From the article:
in New York City, in many (if not most) adult courses, the women are numerous and the men are few — for approximately the same reason that men behind the wheel don’t ask for directions. It goes against the male grain to acknowledge ignorance about a subject, said professionals who organize classes.
Being a man myself, I can’t say that I’m ignorant to whether this is true. What do you think? Why do so many more women take the initiative to take classes? And what’s something we can do to better attract the blokes?
